Features of Sigma 20mm F1.4 DG DN Art

The Sigma 20mm F1.4 DG DN Art carries 17 lens elements in 15 groups. Includes, two SLD lens elements and three aspherical lens elements. According to Sigma, with the construction of this lens, the Sigma 20mm F1.4 DG DN Art can produce photos with sharpness in the entire image area. The colors in the photos are also guaranteed to be accurate, detailed and minimal distortion which are the advantages of Sigma’s premium Art lenses. In addition, Sigma added a layer of Nano Porous Coating (NPC) to minimize the effects of blur and light reflection.
Meanwhile, in the autofocus sector, the autofocus performance of this lens relies on a stepping motor whose performance is fast and quiet. In total it weighs 635 grams. It’s not the lightest. However, it is still ideal for attaching to a compact mirrorless camera.
Unfortunately, even though it is designed specifically for mirrorless cameras, not all cameras can use it. The debut Sigma 20mm F1.4 DG DN Art will be available for Sony E-Mount and Leica L-Mount cameras only.
